HISA to host 2020 international nursing informatics conference
The Health Informatics Society of Australia has won its bid to host the international congress on nursing informatics in 2020, which will be co-located with the 2020 Health Informatics Conference (HIC 2020) in Brisbane.
HISA CEO Louise Schaper said NI 2020 would be a rare opportunity to learn from and network with nurses and midwives at a global level in digital health.
HISA has also released the full program for this year's HIC, being held from July 29 to August 1 in Sydney.
Preceded as customary by the Nursing Informatics Australia (NIA) conference and the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) workshop, this year HIC will also kick off with HISA's user experience (UX) special interest group workshop and a digital health leaders workshop, marking the launch of the Australian Digital Health Executives Network.
The conference proper begins on Monday, July 30, with keynote speaker David Bates, chief of the Division of General Internal Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, who will discuss 25 years of health informatics improving clinical care.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of HIC. Registration is now open.
